The City of Stockton has 67 city parks and many open spaces that are maintained by licensed landscape contractors. City parks range from two-acre neighborhood sites to 64-acre community parks. A wide range of activities are associated with City parks - from picnic areas, assorted game courts, swimming pools, ball diamonds, soccer fields, tot lots, fountains, tennis courts and more. For additional information and park locations, please view the Parks Map.


Approximately half of the City parks have restroom facilities. Some larger sites have community centers and others have larger complexes, such as Oak Park's Billy Hebert Field and Pixie Woods at Louis Park.


The maintenance work performed includes regularly scheduled mowing, edging, shrub trimming, fertilizing, litter/trash collection, graffiti abatement, weed control, minor tree work, and turf aeration. For parks with restrooms or play equipment, the contractor also provides janitorial cleaning and play equipment inspection.

Mowing Schedule

  • March 1 and November 15 - weekly
  • November 16 to February 28 - once every two weeks
